to understand us and then change what we see on the web very often -- going to happen more and more -- based pop what they think they know about it. but they do know about its, adopt they? from our use of smartphones and searches, et cetera? >> guest: exactly. they know. but a lot of times it's inaccurate in the sense of we put a lot of droppings around the web that may have nothing to do with what we really think we are. maybe we don't agree with what we said somewhere and some advertisers picked it up and said, you're intending to buy x. maybe you have a brother who took your name or your password somewhere. but that's irrelevant. all this stuff comes together and becomes a rich soup that increasingly, as we move forward into the 21st century, is going to be the soup that defines us, if that's not a mixed metaphor. >> host: has advertising become more effective? >> guest: no one knows. certainly spending a lot of money but nobody really knows whether it's becoming more effective. i don't care, okay? i'm not interested in effectiveness of advertisings. that's not what the book is about. but p

as they like to spend all the time they spent on it. people don't understand what's going on in the neighborhood, what's going on with this. in particular there's a lot of inaccuracies. i noticed in the data, in the original proposal if you look on the website the original zone includes a map that covers the zone and includes the park. in more recent addition than probably what's in your packet the historic designation does not include the park. if we're going to have a duboce historic zone shouldn't it include the park. this speaks to the outreach effort that the hpc has no ability to live up to. we talked to them about 16 entrances to the park, maintaining the park better to meet historic standards and they really have no way to enforce that. so finally i also have a question around tax benefits. this has come up a lot in our neighborhood meetings. nobody understands the millsabilitmills actand to our s taken advantage of it supervisor wiener has improved the law but that sounds like a gini pig situation to me. i emphasize there are people in the community feel this will

, is the sum of that information, but we need a lot more data about that. we also need to understand what happens when people wait in line. do they turn away? do they have an inferior voting experience? there's a lot of research questions that we really need data on to understand. but really we need to understand why they arise. we have lots of different hypotheses for why they arise. is it voting machines? is it queuing because of registration problems? there's lots of different hypotheses, and i think we need to understand those better is so we can better understand how to resolve those kinds of problems. provisional ballots. um, again, this was manager i actually try -- something i actually tried vainly over the last couple of days to get information on provisional ballots in 2012. it's very difficult to obtain. states are, i think, not providing the information that we need on the numbers of provisionals cast at the county level and in particular why they're being cast, how many are included in the tabulation, how many aren't and the reasons for the ballots that aren't included in the
